Fiat Lux.

"Finally, let me share with you some comments that were written by one of our students on poster board at Sproul Plaza:

"'Fiat lux--once meant we here would illuminate the darkness of ignorance.
Our task is not finished.
The light must outshine the hatred everywhere.
Fiat lux in every heart and mind.'"

--from a letter by Chancellor Robert Berdahl, UC Berkeley.

This is part of the reason I am proud to be a UC Berkeley graduate. There are other reasons, there is reason to believe Berkeley grads acted in heroic ways in this disaster.

Fiat Lux indeed. "And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it"

Keep safe, everybody, and go bears.
